I just watched The Lost Battalion and was wondering if the next expansion will be with the Americans joining the war.
Then I’d like to see a scenario about those 500 American men who went into the wood of Argonne and only 200 came out four days later after fierce attacks (some with flamethrowers) from the German and bombardement of friendly cannons.

To be honest the movie isn’t that good but it is still an interesting battle.
I found this instead of the movie:

Yes, I think the next expansion will include the Americans and the FT-17 tanks.

I thought the next expansion was War Horse.

Early war stuff like cavalry and Russians.

Maybe have an expansion with Austrians and Americans?

There will be an American expansion - It is planned for release in a couple of years, just in time to take credit for ending the game's "lifespan". whistle

I thought Russian Expansion was next as well. I believe that was what was on the flier at GenCon 2017.

American Expansion was mentioned during the French KS campaign but was not said to be next.

I think the game will continue for quite a while.devil

It has a great mechanism and each scenario can be replayed and different due to shelling no mans land.

The key to making this a really successful series is Gallipoli. It is an under represented area of WWI and uses Aussies/Commonwealth troops.

Lighter tan colours to represent the commonwealth, even using the same poses, would be a must buy. Canadians really came into their own in this conflict.

I’d also like to see action in the Sinai-Levant as well as other parts of Africa. Very different type of warfare there.

Oh yes an American expansion would be great.
And why not also a New Zealand expansion ?
